Supreme Court Justices Can’t Agree on When They Should Recuse Themselves From Cases

From a Washington Post story by Robert Barnes and Ann E. Marimow headlined “Supreme Court justices discussed, but did not agree on, code of conduct”:

The Supreme Court has failed to reach consensus on an ethics code of conduct specific to the nine justices despite internal discussion dating back at least four years, according to people familiar with the matter.

It remains an active topic at the court, these people said, and the court’s legal counsel Ethan Torrey prepared a working document of issues for them to consider. There is no timeline for the justices to act, however. Those familiar with the matter spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the situation.
